George I. Sánchez fought the Second World War with his pen. He used his academic position at the University of Texas to talk up the national Good Neighbor Policy with Latin America. He especially advanced its domestic corollary: If treating Latin Americans without racial prejudice was good for the war effort, he reasoned, so was extending the same treatment to Mexican Americans at home. He advanced these ideas through textbooks in the Inter-American Series and by writing a book on Mexican higher education. Sánchez used his national presidency of League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to further Good Neighborism with the state government in Texas and with policymakers in the U.S. State Department. His attempts to join the Office of Naval Intelligence, however, were regularly and curtly denied.
